Joshua fought the battle of Jericho ~ Lyrics
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho.
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho,
And the walls came a tumbling down.
You can talk about your men of Gideon,
You can talk a-bout your men of Saul,
But there’s none like good old Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Joshua rose early in the morning,
That is when the trumpets blew.
They marched around the city, at the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Right up to the walls of Jericho,
He marched with spear in hand,
He commanded the children to SHOUT! and the walls came a tumbling down. Oh!
And the walls came a tumbling down!
